We Are the End of the World

1 Previously on "The Walking Dead.
" We found one of their masks today.
- They're on alert.
Someone found a skin.
- A skin? AARON: So, at least one of 'em has been on our side of border.
- Are they back? - We do not need to start a panic.
[EXPLOSION IN DISTANCE.]
If we get caught on their side of the border, that's it, that's war.
Why are we still respecting borders, when Alpha isn't even here? - - [CAR HORN BLARING.]
[HISSING.]
[BLARING CONTINUES.]
[GROWLING.]
[BLARING STOPS.]
[GROWLING CONTINUES.]
Open.
- [GROWLS.]
- No! [GRUNTS.]
Aah! [WHIMPERS, CRIES.]
[SCREAMS.]
[GROWLING CONTINUES.]
[SCREAMING.]
[SCREAMING.]
[CRIES.]
Aah! [SCREAMING.]
[GROWLS.]
[ALL GROWLING.]
[GRUNTS.]
Mama! Hurry, Mama! [POUNDING ON DOOR, GROWLING CONTINUES.]
Mama! Mama, hurry! Mama! [SCREAMING.]
[BREATHING HEAVILY.]
- [VOICE BREAKING.]
I'm so sorry, Mama.
- [COUGHING.]
You almost got us killed again.
[BREATHING HEAVILY.]
Mama, there's a man.
It is time that the pack returns.
There is more gathering to be done, Guardians to be found.
We are far from the enemy.
Their fear will subside.
They will fear us no matter where we are.
They fill fear us because of what we did.
Do you doubt me? Our mission? Never.
Take the sisters when you depart.
They have a real gift, a scent for the dead.
We don't mean harm.
[BANGING ON DOOR, GROWLING IN DISTANCE.]
Can you talk? [FOOTSTEPS APPROACH.]
- [METAL CLANGS.]
- [GASPS.]
Mama, I don't like this.
Please Go on and try to kill us.
But know two things One, I do not die easily, and, two, you must also kill my daughter because I will not leave this Earth without her.
[BREATHING HEAVILY.]
One night.
Thank you.
Do not leave this hallway.
Do you think I could wash up? - Sorry, Mama, but the smell - Is there water? [BANGING, GROWLING CONTINUES.]
Is he a monster? [WHISPERING.]
We're all monsters now.
BETA: Be on alert.
Buildings could be full.
MALE WHISPERER #1: Gather all of them? Every last one we can find.
[GROWLING.]
Split up.
We track better apart.
Did you hear me? [ALL GROWLING.]
He's watching you.
FRANCES: The sun feels different today.
[CHUCKLES.]
Can you feel that, sister? Like it's burning right into our skin.
Stop it.
Your head's in the clouds again.
He'll see that you're not committed to the cause to her.
Don't say that.
I should've left you behind when I had the chance.
[GROWLING CONTINUES.]
I hear them.
Over there.
- [GROWLING IN DISTANCE.]
- [WHIMPERS.]
Shh.
[HUMMING.]
[HUMMING.]
- [HUMMING STOPS.]
- Were you singing? Wouldn't call it that.
Don't do it again.
[PILL BOTTLE RATTLES.]
You have a name? The dead don't have names.
And we shouldn't, either.
Without names or a past, those of us strong enough to still be alive out here can know each other on a primal level.
[GROWLING IN DISTANCE.]
They fear nothing.
They want only to feed.
They are free.
How'd you end up in here? Got into a tussle with the dead, ran me out of my camp a few months ago.
Is that why you wear that? LYDIA: Mama, come back! [SNIFFS.]
I like it the sound of the dead.
It's the only song I never want to end.
[ALL GROWLING.]
[GATE RATTLES.]
[GROWLS.]
[GROWLS.]
[GATE RATTLING.]
[GATE WHIRRING.]
[GATE THUDS.]
[ALL GROWLING.]
Sister, focus.
[BABY CRYING.]
[SOBBING.]
What is wrong with you? You will pay.
[CRYING.]
I'm sorry.
I'm sorry.
I'm sorry.
I don't feel he's better there.
I love him, and he's gone.
[CRYING.]
He's with them in a better place! ALPHA: Stop! [BREATHING SHAKILY.]
[CRYING.]
[SOBBING.]
BETA: She is an uncommitted now.
Her actions threatened the entire pack.
Leaving her child broke her.
You will never understand how it feels to abandon your child.
You still think of Lydia.
She was dead to me long before I ended her.
Bring her to me in the deeper place.
I'll be waiting.
[SCOFFS.]
[DOOR CREAKS.]
You're gonna sleep in here.
I'll be right outside.
It'll be quiet.
Why are there big pillows all over the walls? So the people put in here wouldn't hurt themselves.
[ZIPPER UNZIPS.]
People like that man out there? These walls could never control someone like that.
You like him? Uh-huh.
I don't want it.
You've never slept without her I don't want it.
I'm not a baby anymore.
I don't want that stupid bunny.
I don't want to be scared.
I want to be more like you, Mama.
[GASPS.]
I've waited so long to hear that.
[CHUCKLES.]
And I hope that you will because if you can't, I'll have no choice but to leave you behind.
Please, Mama, don't ever leave me.
I promise I'll do better out there.
I will.
You'll see.
I love you, Mama.
Stop calling me that.
[SHUDDERS.]
[CRYING.]
[CRYING.]
Alpha, I'm sorry.
Please.
I won't talk about him again.
Please.
Remove your mask.
[BREATHING SHAKILY.]
Kneel.
[BREATHING SHAKILY.]
[CRIES.]
[SCREAMING.]
[CRYING.]
Shh.
Shh.
Shh.
Thank you.
Thank you.
Thank you.
[BREATHES DEEPLY.]
[BREATHES SHAKILY.]
Alpha showed you her grace? I'll never stray again, sister.
We keep thinking about that place, too.
It looked so safe.
There was livestock.
We can all go back.
We can get Why? Do not question me.
But if she strays again, I will skin her alive for all to see.
She unsettles the pack.
Then we keep a close eye, make sure her moment of weakness doesn't infect the others.
The others have already spoken of the enemy, the life they saw.
It is not a life.
It is a fantasy.
And the pack must learn that again.
They must see it up close.
They will.
When? Soon.
Are you content? I have seen you wander away from the camp alone at night.
I am right here as I've always been.
[HUMMING.]
[FOOTSTEPS APPROACH.]
[HUMS.]
[GROWLS.]
[BODY THUDS.]
[GROWLING IN DISTANCE.]
[ALL GROWLING.]
[KNIFE CLATTERS.]
[GRUNTING.]
[BODY THUDS.]
[BREATHING HEAVILY.]
[GROWLING CONTINUES.]
I like killing with you.
[BOTH BREATHING HEAVILY.]
[SNIFFS.]
Oh, you're different.
People who knew me before all this would probably say the same thing.
Never trusted those people, anyway.
I don't hardly trust anyone.
Neither do I.
[GRUNTS.]
[BONES CRACKING.]
Well done, Big Man.
- "Big Man"? - Okay.
"Mr.
B.
" I thought we didn't have names.
It's not a name.
It's a letter.
So, if I'm "B," what does that make you? "A.
" [SNIFFS.]
[SLOSHING.]
So, you can move with them when you're covered? It's not just about moving with them.
You got to become them, feel what they feel.
And what do they feel? Nothing.
There are only two kinds of people left in this world the ones brave enough to walk with the dead and everybody else.
So, tell me, B, which one are you? [BREATHING HEAVILY.]
[SHAKILY.]
Leave.
At sunrise.
Don't come back.
[BUCKET SLIDES.]
[FOOTSTEPS DEPART.]
[HUMMING.]
[BLOOD SPLATTERS.]
[INSECTS CHIRPING.]
What was it like, to be alone with her? Just as you'd imagine.
She's powerful, so calm.
My head finally feels right again.
So, you are no longer thinking of him? I'm glad I made that sacrifice.
As Alpha sacrificed her daughter.
She said when she watched her die, she didn't shed one tear.
She is Alpha.
She doesn't cry.
I'm so sorry for risking what we have here.
I know.
Don't do it again ever.
Did you mean what you said before, you wish you'd left me behind? Go to sleep, sis.
[ALL GROWLING.]
[EXPLOSION.]
ALPHA: Pull them back.
BETA: Steady.
Do not break.
There's too many.
Stay the course.
I want them.
[ALL GROWLING.]
[BABY CRYING.]
Bring him.
You brought a baby out here? [CRYING CONTINUES.]
[CRYING.]
No! [ALL GROWLING.]
[GRUNTING.]
[SCREAMING.]
Aah! [SCREAMING.]
Do you regret what you did? She was an uncommitted.
She no longer belonged with us.
I had to protect the Alpha.
And you did.
It was your destiny.
As the lion who smothers her wailing cub, we're strongest when we kill our own blood.
It is the purest, most honest way to bring order to chaos.
Your purity will never be forgotten.
Yes, Alpha.
I see greatness in you.
There's a tear.
Should I repair it? [FOOTSTEPS APPROACH.]
BETA: Leave us.
Are you hurt? I never felt more calm.
Calm? We lost three of our own, and many more of the dead, and you are calm? It was mayhem.
There is clarity amid the chaos.
She fears nothing.
Hmm.
[DOOR CREAKING.]
[SQUISHING.]
LYDIA: We're all monsters now.
We're all monsters now.
We're all monsters now.
We're all monsters now.
For your bravery and sacrifice and for putting the needs of the pack above your own, I anoint you Gamma.
To Gamma.
To Gamma.
- To Gamma.
- To Gamma.
- To Gamma.
- To Gamma.
ALL: To Gamma.
To Gamma.
To Gamma.
To Gamma.
To Gamma.
To Gamma.
To Gamma.
To Gamma.
To Gamma.
To Gamma.
To Gamma.
To Gamma.
To Gamma.
You've been gone for hours.
Are you angry with me? I feel nothing for you.
I am also empty, as Alpha wants.
Where is she? I saw her moving toward the old camp a while ago.
LYDIA: We're all monsters now.
We're all monsters now.
[GROWLING IN DISTANCE.]
[SHUDDERS.]
We're all monsters now.
[BANGING ON DOOR.]
[GROWLING, BANGING ON DOOR.]
[DOOR CREAKS, GROWLING.]
ALPHA: Lydia? Lydia? Lydia? Have you lost your way? Have you? I told you never to come over here.
[CHUCKLES NERVOUSLY.]
I-I need to find my daughter.
I don't care.
You kept that? This is for Lydia.
You said she was dead, that you killed her.
You want her back.
You shouldn't have come here.
Why? Why did you lie to me? She is never coming back, no matter how much you wish for it or how hard you try to replace her with someone else.
She is gone, Alpha! [GROWLING.]
No! She's my daughter.
She's my baby.
[BREATHING SHAKILY.]
I could not kill her.
[WHISPERING.]
They can't know.
They cannot know Lydia's alive.
They cannot know.
[SNIFFLES.]
They won't.
[VOICE BREAKING.]
Lydia is dead.
Lydia is dead to me.
She was dead the moment she was born 'cause she was not like me.
[CRIES.]
Because she was not like me.
Because she was not like me.
She was not like me.
She was not like me! She was not like me! She was not like me! She was not like me!! [GRUNTS.]
[WHIMPERS.]
- [GRUNTING.]
- [CLATTERING.]
I know you better than you know yourself.
You've got demons, yeah, just like me.
But you are not broken! - You were made for this.
- Aah! No! Stop! She's trying to save you! [BREATHING HEAVILY.]
My baby.
[BREATHING HEAVILY.]
- Mama, I was strong.
- You were, baby.
And I'm so proud of you.
But don't you dare, dare ever leave me again! You hear me?! [SNIFFLES.]
The world, it went dark so that we could see a new path.
So come.
Come on.
Walk with me in the darkness.
Walk with me, and you will never be alone again.
My "B.
" I am the end of the world.
I am the end of the world.
I am the end of the world.
We are the end of the world.
We are the end of the world.
[BREATHES HEAVILY.]
[BREATHES SHAKILY.]
[CHUCKLES.]
[SNIFFLES.]
Come with us.
I can't leave him.
[BREATHES SHAKILY.]
You won't have to.
[CRIES.]
[GRUNTING.]
[BREATHING HEAVILY.]
I saw smoke by the border.
The enemy may have crossed.
We must teach them a lesson.
And the pack will watch.
We're going back.
BOTH: We walk in darkness.
We are free.
We bathe in blood.
We are free.
We love nothing.
We are free.
We fear nothing.
We are free.
We need no words.
We are free.
We embrace all death.
We are free.
[ALL GROWLING.]
This is the end of the world.
Now is the end of the world.
We are the end of the world.
